@ comment #8: I was referring to:
  - User opens Windows Explorer
  - User navigates through c:\Program Files\WOTR and clicks on Rings_Demo.exe

This results in Windows executing Rings_Demo.exe _with_ absolute path.

OTOH, in the following situation (e.g. in GNOME):

  - User opens nautilus
  - User navigates through ~/.wine/drive_c/etc.. and clicks on Rings_Demo.exe

GNOME will pass the following to wine:

  - current dir: $HOME
  - argv[1]: absolute path to Rings_Demo.exe

which, unless converted to win32 form, is not consistent with the Windows
behaviour.  This is also inconvenient for command-line users running "wine
$HOME/.wine/drive_c/..../Rings_Demo.exe" (the equivalent of that is a full path

OTOH, on Windows, Rings_Demo.exe will always work unless you run it via cmd.exe
from the game directory (using a relative path), or if you hack the *.lnk file
as you described.
